What is it? Founded in 2004 as Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art, Istanbul Modern was forced to move to a smaller, temporary location in Beyoğlu earlier this year due to ongoing construction work in Karaköy.

Why go? While its temporary home is a far cry from its original seafront location, Istanbul Modern still continues to host cutting-edge exhibitions by artists from Turkey and abroad as well as those curated from its permanent collection. 

Don’t miss: The in-house cinema regularly screens independent films programmed around ongoing exhibitions, contemporary directors and stand-alone events.

Istanbul’s foremost modern arts museum, Istanbul Modern moved to a temporary space in Beyoğlu in May 2018, where it will welcome visitors until its new building is completed in 2021. Founded in 2004 as Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art, Istanbul Modern offers a variety of cultural activities in its permanent and temporary exhibition halls, photography gallery, spaces for educational and social programs, library, cinema, café, and store. The in-house cinema regularly screens independent films programmed around ongoing exhibitions, contemporary directors and stand-alone events.

Please check Istanbul Modern’s website for information on visiting hours and admission.
